Welcome to the Technology Page

 veronica rinehart technology director"Empowering our students to successfully transform our community" is our district's purpose.  My goal as Director of Technology is to provide the necessary training and equipment needed for our district to continue the 1:1 program at it's greatest potential.  In doing so, we will help fulfill our district's purpose. 

Our tech department is proud to be able to provide technology tools to enhance our students learning experience at Galion City Schools. In addition to maintaining our 1:1 program with Apple products, our tech department also supports Windows operating devices necessary for several course curriculums.  In addition, this year we are excited to introduce a new learning management system called Canvas that will take our 1:1 program to the next level.  

I take personal pride in making myself available to all students, staff and community members.  Please do not hesitate to contact me, so that I may address and questions or concerns you have related to our department.
